A JOURNEY OF PASSION AND REGRET FROM MONTEVERDI TO PIAZZOLLA
From the Venice of Monteverdi to the milongas of Buenos Aires passing through the sounds od Sicily. Four stories of missed loves and regretted lands, memories of a woman as strong as a land or of a land loved as a woman. Glances and steps that get lost, to find themselves beyond the sea in the sound of a bandoneon.
Music by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992), Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643), Johannes Cornago (c. 1400 – after 1475), anonymous traditional.
